    A wall's not going to be that effective. It's too easy to climb it or dig under it or knock a hole in it... a wall by itself is not the solution.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    it is if you have rabid moles patrolling it.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

I'm all for managed immigration to this country, but I'm absolutely opposed to illegal immigration on all levels now. I'm out of measurable sympathy for the plight of those in foreign countries with regard to unemployment and low wages. At this moment it's America first from where I am sitting. I still think we should be a good neighbor and play well with others, but we need to tend to our own first.
    Think that one through alittle bit. It's really a catch-22.

    Those who strongly oppose illegal immigration would certainly be in favor of such spending measures, but those who strongly believe in state's rights and self-sufficiency would certainly think it the State's responsibility to provide such funding for themselves.

    I'd be all for improving IT infrustructure and the like to aid in sharing information across multiple database and web-based platforms, but the body armor, weapons, vehicles and personnel would certainly be on the State and city government's nickle.
